Oat Bran Organic Australian
Oat bran contains about 50% more fiber and soluble fiber than oatmeal as well as protein, riboflavin, magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron, thiamin, phosphorus, riboflavin and magnesium. The natural high fibre content makes it the perfect food to help those suffering from digestion problems.
Where as oatmeal is the wholegrain, oat bran is taken from the outer part of the oat grain. It contains a soluble fibre (beta-glucan) and if eaten regularly can help reduce the levels of Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. This type of cholesterol is known as the bad cholesterol.
The processing of oat bran once consumed, slows down the sugar assimilation and removes calories from the body by reducing the absorption of dietary fat, while keeping your blood sugar levels low and stable. These are just a few of the many benefits this versatile product has to offer.
Oat bran absorbs on average 25 times its volume in liquid. Upon consumption, once in the digestive tract its soluble fibre absorbs water and forms a gel. This process creates the feeling of being full which helps those wanting to achieve weight loss.
If you aim to eat 3g of beta glucan or soluble fibre from oats a day (around 60g a day) it will help lower your cholesterol levels if eaten as part of an overall healthy diet.
This nutritious food can be easily consumed and is ideal mixed with yogurt or cottage cheese or for breakfast as a hot cereal blended with fruit and honey, especially in the colder months. Oat bran can also be used to make savory pancakes, pizza crust, muffins, cookies and much more!
